    Where does Edge store favorites?

    Since I was unable to import them from IE I started over.
    I only use the Favorites Bar and have created 3 folders and have added some sites.
    I checked:
    C:\Users\username\Favorites\Favorites Bar
    and don't see anything there except for the Favorites Bar folder.
    When I navigate to:
    C:\Users\username\Favorites\Favorites Bar and ''Copy address as text,
    This gets pasted:
    C:\Users\James\Favorites\Links

    :)

    Microsoft Edge

    At present you can't password protect bookmarks in Microsoft Edge. Perhaps someone will eventually write an extension for Microsoft Edge that does, but I think that is unlikely since it would be a royal pain in the you-know-where to have to enter a password
    each time someone wants to use a bookmark.

    If you want, you can backup your Favorites. This will allow you to restore your Favorites to the way they were. From a web search:

    why doesn't the Favorites listed in Microsoft Edge sync with Favorites in Windows Explorer (C:\users\%username%\Favorites)

    Given that Favorites on IE11 sync with Windows Explorer, it appears as a very retrograde step in MS Edge as it is making the Favorites in Windows Explorer useless unless you make entries into both Favorites folders. Any reason for this - what appears to
    be a major glitch in Windows 10

    Have you tried clicking the star and clicking Import Favourites, at the next window clicking Import. Make sure IE box is ticked.

    Yes. It said 'Done' but my IE favorites aren't there.

    So, I'm just wondering where Edge stores the favorites I created within Edge.

    That's a long one!!

    With IE I moved the location of my Favorites so I can back them up like all my other data.
    So, apparently I need to navigate all that way in order to back them up.
    Oh well.
    I guess I could pin it to Quick Access
